knitting sheep


My fuzzy lamb pattern is by far the most popular. I like to think that it's not just because it's free! It does knit up into a cute and cuddly toy, and looks different every time because you can use so many different kinds of yarn for it. But who knew they might take on a life of their own, and inspired by their origins, begin to knit for themselves! I'd like to introduce Sheldon, created by Jennifer Adams.

Sheldon is really in the zone too, knitting away at that garter stitch scarf. Maybe he's enjoying a knitting pod cast, or watching a movie, or listening to his knitting buddies chat about the latest to-die-for yarns.

I'm in the process of revising all my patterns. Just little tweaks here and there, where I want to improve the shaping or make the instructions clearer. I'm also thinking of including a jumper with the free lamb pattern. Once it's all ready I'll let you know, in case you want to try the new version. But don't worry too much! The differences are so small you wouldn't notice in a photo. I guess there's just a touch of perfectionist in me.

Hi,I made the fuzzy lamb to and enjoyed every moment, I like the colours used on this one and the way he's sat knitting.

I have made my own little Fuzzy Lamb. Thank you for your lovely easy to follow pattern.
I have put a picture on my blog. I think I'll have to try a bunny next.
